This Friday, the hotly anticipated Kips Bay Decorator Show House Dallas will open its doors to the public. For the past seven weeks, our city’s leading designers have been hard at work transforming both the interior and exterior of 5828 Woodland Drive, a storied 11,000-square-foot Preston Hollow home. On September 25, design lovers can finally take a tour.
The event’s Chairs are Steele Marcoux, Christopher Peacock, and Jan Showers, and the Vice-Chairs are Jean Lui and Chad Dorsey. In all, 27 designers, architects, and contemporary artists participated in the event; each was given a room or a section of the home to reimagine. We’re particularly smitten by Doniphan Moore’s moody master bath, Viviano’s foliage-filled family room, Melissa Gerstle’s resort-worthy pool deck, and Sees Design’s celestial bar area.
Though this is the Show House’s first appearance in Dallas, the event takes place annually in New York City and Palm Beach. It serves as the main fundraiser for New York City’s Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, a nonprofit that provides young adults with educational and developmental programs. The Dallas Show House will also benefit Dwell with Dignity, which creates beautiful living spaces for local families transitioning out of homelessness, and The Crystal Charity Ball, which supports children’s charities in Dallas County.
The Show House will follow stringent sanitation and social distancing guidelines, and visitors must book a tour time in advance to limit occupancy. A 3D video tour will also be available for those who prefer to explore the vignettes virtually. Both the in-person and online tours will be available through October 25.
